What Do You Do With an Idea?
Author: Kobi Yamada | Illustrator: Mae Besom | Hardcover
This is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child's confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens.
This is a story for anyone, at any age, who's ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult. It's a story to inspire you to welcome that idea, to give it some space to grow, and to see what happens next. Because your idea isn't going anywhere. In fact, it's just getting started.

Have you ever had an idea but were too afraid to tell anyone about it? This story about a child who has an "idea" but is doubtful about sharing his idea so he tries to ignore it . . . but he can't get rid of it because it keeps following him wherever he goes. When he decides to nurture his idea, it starts to grow bigger and bigger until suddenly his idea bursts out into the world and brings a miraculous change. This book, along with What Do You Do with a Chance and What Do You Do with a Problem, are my go-to books for gift-giving as they represent creativity and encouragement, reminding us that when life presents challenges, to stay motivated and never give up.
